When James Cameron re-released the movie Titanic in 3D to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the disaster, one of the biggest question that went through my mind was: how much changes did he made to the movie.
I don’t mean changing from 2D to 3D. I mean making adjustments to the story by adding unreleased scene or editing the existing scene to tell a different story. Ask George Lucas, he is well known for making changes to the Star Wars movie whenever possible. (And I still believe that Han Solo fired the first shot)
But luckily for us, James Cameron didn’t make much changes to the 1997 Blockbuster. In fact, he only made 1 change. The stars in the sky that Rose see when she is lying on a piece of wood. All because of the complaint from a American astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Sometimes I find it amazing that people actually pays so much attention to those fine details.
It took 300 artists working for more than a year to outline every object, character, feature on face frame by frame for Titanic 3D. I heard that the 3D conversion is pretty well done. Maybe I might consider catching it again on the big screen after 15 years. Wow, I feel old now.
